Chair Pose (Utkatasana)

A series of illustrated yoga poses with men performing the Chair Pose

Chair Pose, or Utkatasana, is a standing posture that helps to build strength in the legs, glutes, back and core. Chair Pose is also a big help with reversing the effects of flat feet. Chair Pose tones the ankles and calves and creates strength. Chair Pose also stretches the chest and shoulders. Typically, Yogis will hold Chair Pose for a few breaths before moving on to the next posture. It is also common, in Chair Pose, to incorporate a twist or increase the intensity by going deeper into Chair Pose.
